Judge C D Gongle held accused Arjun Jogadiya guilty of rape and murder while attempting to destroy evidence, and sentenced him to death. According to the prosecution, on November 10, 2004, the accused had taken the 10-year-old girl and her younger brother to a Chinese fast food joint at Agripada and after treating them to food, asked the boy to go home saying that they would follow shortly. The accused then took the girl to the terrace of a building, raped her, strangled her to death and dumped her body. The minor girl’s body was found in the garbage bin the next day when some children playing cricket went in search of their ball. The accused was arrested soon after.
